Did Colt make any top strap percussion firearms? I know the answer, just wanting to forward info to newcomers.

Gunsmithing/Tuning/Parts & Repairs / Colt screwdriver tips
« on: May 12, 2018, 07:47:29 AM »
Brownells had a free shipping/no minimum purchase offer and I took advantage to order 2 sets of Colt SAA screwdriver tips. I do have a couple of generic gunsmith screwdriver sets and they seem to fit pretty good, but I thought these would be nice so I wouldn't have to sort through the different sizes. They came yesterday, but the reduced power mainsprings are in back order. I'll keep the new screwdriver tips separate from the others, maybe mark them somehow, or keep them apart from the other tips in the box. Richard said these SAA tips fit the Pietta Colts, so now I should have a lifetime supply! He also told us about the reduced power mainsprings a while back.

Winchester / Repro 1866
« on: April 01, 2018, 06:07:10 PM »
Does anyone know when the first Navy Arms (Uberti) 1866 Yellow Boy guns were made? I believe I have one coming and think it is a first year Carbine with serial number 5XX. Won't know for sure until after tomorrow and see the date code.

Gun Builds and Projects / Pietta screws
« on: March 03, 2018, 10:48:36 AM »
Since Pietta screws are well know to be soft, has anyone tried to harden them? If so, how did they turn out? I have a can of Casenit (I don't think it is being sold anymore) and have been considering using it on some gun screws, but decided to ask here before investing my time. There are other hardening compounds on the market now, don't know why Casenit was pulled.

This was offered up a little over a month ago. I thought about bidding, but didn't :-[

Colt Cousins / Hawes, another "Colt"
« on: February 06, 2018, 12:47:39 PM »
This is a Sauer and Son Colt, imported by Hawes in 45 Colt


I bought it used/as new and it has a very light trigger. I don't know if someone worked it over or if it came from the factory  that way.

Here's a couple of pictures of my USFA Colt in 44WCF

1873 SAA Colts / My Colt SAA
« on: February 04, 2018, 12:23:01 PM »
Well, it is just too darned cold to go outside and find a nice background for photographing my Colt (like Scooby did!) so here it is on a very plain background.

I bought this 3rd Generation Colt from a friend who had put the long barrel on the gun, saving the shorter barrel. Aesthetically, I do prefer the Artillery length, but find both attractive. Oh, this is in 45 Colt.

BPCR Reloading / Mdl. 1888 reloading tool
« on: December 30, 2017, 01:45:38 PM »
After seeing Scoobie's post about his '94 reloading tool I went to find mine. Didn't come across it (pretty sure I DO have one....someplace), but decided to post this Mdl. 1888 Winchester tool.

Tools and other trinkets / Another shooting/range box
« on: December 21, 2017, 06:48:13 PM »
This box was made and used by a very good friend. I got it from his widow when he passed away:

Photo Gallery / Display case
« on: December 14, 2017, 12:56:40 PM »
I was going through a box of old photos and came across this one. The case was on the wall of the house I had when I lived in town. This picture is 35+ years old. I still have the case but don't have anything displayed in it at the moment. If I did display it, it would have to be on a wall that is not visible from outside.

Air Power / Schofield #3
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:18:36 PM »
I won this gun on an auction last week. The guy said it is unused and I see no reason to dispute that. He bought it to go with a costume. Didn't come with a box or papers, though the user manual is easy enough to find on the 'net.

Air Power / Crosman 1875
« on: November 17, 2017, 12:53:29 PM »
I am glad to see a dedicated forum devoted to air guns; thanks Capt'n! OK, I got this gun from Pyramyd Air a bit ago. It was on sale and I bit. Sad to say I haven't had the opportunity to test it out yet. If you check around, you can find a little better pricing.

Powder Horns & Flasks / A unique cap container
« on: October 19, 2017, 12:18:42 PM »
The last trade items I got from a friend included this cap container; it is his design. The container itself is a pronghorn antelope antler as you can see. The top is secured with pine pitch and the thong is braintan deer hide. Logo stands for Rocky Mountain Fur Company. Even came with some percussion caps in it!
